March 2011

Mmmm, do you think I should change the name of our blog to something about Esther? I won't do that, she helps us serve the Lord too (in fact, she's head of our children's deparment :) ) but I'm noticing that she is sort of dominating the blog...This is her in a snow suit - we've been taking her out to get the mail with us once and a while.
She's outgrowing clothes by the week, and she recently discovered how to roll over and is making full use of her new mobility.

Esther's swing from Grandma S. - She likes it for a while, but then she gets tired of being all strapped in!
I sat next to her in the van for a while because she doesn't really like being strapped in the car seat either! Managed to catch a smile :)
We've been talking about going down to visit Aaron's brother and sister-in-law in Missouri for a while, and had a free week so we left after church on Sunday and made it back Saturday afternoon. We also spent a couple nights with my cousins in South Dakota and it was fun to catch up with them too - unfortunetly, I forgot to take pictures while we were there...
Josh and Danialah took us to a BBQ restraunt in Kansas City - it was a cultural experience :)
Esther all dressed up :)
It was like 70 degrees one of the days we were there! Aaron and his brother spent time cutting wood and working in the garden and working on a car - guy things - and us girls just kind of hung out.
Also, when we were in the city, we walked around down town (there were a couple men giving carriage rides...) and went in a giant bookstore.

Four Months Old

Hello! I hope you all are doing well - we both had bad colds earlier this week, but, thankfully, are feeling much better!

The other day we went to a natural mill that's located near here - we'd never been there before and found it pretty exciting :) They had all kinds of different grains and flours and a few other things - in small bags or big bags. So, it's a great place to go if you want to eat healthier or have a large family! We bought a few things we needed, and a few things to try just for fun.
I took a few pictures of Esther a couple Sundays ago and this was my favorite one - she's four months old now. Recently she's started reaching and playing with her toes...but she still would rather eat at night than during the day - life is just so exciting!
She can almost sit up without help...
and we're still not sure if her eyes are going to stay blue or turn brown.
Aaron and Esther :) Have a great week!
